About the Event


Hand dyed Irish and International Yarn - Babbles Yarns, Bear in Sheeps clothing, Yurwool, S Twist Wool, Hawari Bazar

Hand made bags and notions pouches by Terri of My Cottage No 9

Patterns for sale by Anna - Yarnesty - Sweden.

The Talk by Diarmuid of S Twist Wool is a very special opportunity to hear what it is like to create yarn in Ireland in this day and age. It is a rare opportunity to have a chat with him in a comfortable Irish pub.

There will also be weaving and spinning demonstrations during the day by various members of the group. I will have my Ashford Traditional set up and am happy to give people a go. I will also have my 16 inch rigid heddle loom set up and people can add to the piece for the weekend creating a piece of collaborative fibre art.
